society, you should vote for barack obama and joe biden. >> you electrified the place and they all say why do we have this 22nd amendment. why couldn't bill clinton just run again and be president for the next 30 years. >> well, we have it for good reasons. it's a hard job being president, and you also have a vast array of people working for you. it worked i think well. i think we did the right thing to keep president roosevelt for a third time, but when he died shortly after being elected to a fourth term and people didn't really know a full measure of his health challenges, the 22nd amendment passed. it's ironic that the 22nd amendment passed at a time when people thought the democrats had a lock on the white house and then it was, then after in the last 50 years, the republicans had it more than the democrats, but i think there's still an argument for saying that eight years, certainly eight years in a row is enough. you don't want to run the risk of sclerosisdemocratic society. you want to keep the blood running. you don't want to give the idea that any particular, particularly one as
